And I’m Off . . .

Finally!

The pattern arrived for Sophie’s birthday project. I’m not certain whether or not I can complete it in time for Sophie’s birthday on the 29th, but I’m going to give it my all.

For those who need a refresher, Sophie’s birthday project is a hooded sweater designed to match the tattoos on Aang, the main character on one of Sophie’s favorite television shows, Avatar: The Last Air Bender. The sweater is in a beautiful silvery-gray color with blue arrows on the sleeves and hood, which match air bender tattoos. The chest of the sweater has three spirals, the symbol of the air nation.

The pattern arrived on Tuesday, just as I was leaving for work, of course. I did some designing and swatching and was ready to cast on by the next day. But wouldn’t you know it, my old pal fate had to intervene by giving me a nasty chest cold. I’ve been sleeping a lot, which severly limits the amount of time that I can spend knitting.
